You know, when I was designing this, I thought of adding an option to select the number of fastener hole columns, so that one could configure a single column of fastener holes on each leaf, like a piano hinge. I'll see if I can add the option. Should be doable.

In the meantime, something you could do to line up the holes exactly, is to compute the hinge width as follows.

hinge_width = 4 x fastener_margin + 2 x fastener_head_diameter + 2 x leaf_gauge

This will align all the fastener holes on each leaf into a single column. Even if you specify an even number of holes for each leaf, they will overlap exactly to form single holes with that formula.
